Everton sign Alex Iwobi from Arsenal, The 23-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year deal at Goodison Park with Everton paying £28m up front, plus up to £7m in additional fees.
Everton’s late move for Iwobi came as they failed in their pursuit of Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, but Toffees boss Marco Silva has insisted the Nigeria international had always been on his wishlist.
Alex was one of our main targets for this window and I believe he is a fantastic signing for Everton,” Silva said.
“He is a direct and skilful winger and attacking midfielder who always works very hard for his team.
“He is still young but already with a lot of top-level experience – 100 Premier League matches, more in Europe and many international games.”
Iwobi is Everton’s seventh and final signing of the summer transfer window, following the additions of goalkeeper Jonas Lössl, right-back Djibril Sidibe, midfielders Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and striker Moise Kean.
